    Default Fritz!box 7490

    Our fibre system uses the above router. I have a couple of queries about it:

    1. The phone beside the machine is connected to the "Fon 1" socket. The pre existing lines within the house, which supply a portable phone and a fixed phone, are connected to the "Fon 2". Before the fibre connection, we could pick up any phone, and get someone else to get the call on another. Now this doesn't work between the two connections to the router; would this work if a splitter was plugged into "Fon 1", and the two lines into that?

    2. When there is a message on the answering machine, we can listen to it by dialling **600, but cannot rehear the message. I have the manual but it really doesn't help.

    Can anybody help?

    The norm is to have all phones connected into one socket. Usually this just means you hook the previous phone circuit into a router socket and all works as before.

    So, yes, however you do it, just get all phones onto the one socket.

    Thanks linw, I have connected them all to one socket, and it seems to work. I haven't solved the problem with the answering machine yet I see that I didn't make clear that the answering machine is part of the router.

    Usually 2Degrees use their own answering system, althou you can enable the one on the FritzBox. Try to log onto the Fritzbox by typing the IP number into a browser and check the messages.

    If you are on 2degrees, their email system is accessed by dialing *55

    As neither of the replies regarding the answering machine solved my problem, I sent a query to AVM, (the Fritzbox manufacturer), who has answered, and resolved the problem.

    To listen to messages: dial **600,
    to rehear the message (if only one message) dial 1 then 1,
    if more than one message dial 9 to go forward, or 7 to go back in the list.
